The library isn’t the first place you think of when it comes to borrowing movies, but we do a good business of loaning movies as well as books. Right now in our collection, we have over 1000 DVDs, ranging from documentaries to musicals to dramas. We have movies for young people and older people and everyone in between. You can have our movies for one week at a time, four movies out per family and they’re free to borrow! (You’ll only pay a fee if you return them late….and then it’s only 10 cents per day/per movie. No wild late fees here!)
So, how do you go about looking for movies in our library? You can do one of two things…..search for them on the computer, or flip through the cards. If you’re going to use our online catalog, just type in “DVD” in the search box.
It’ll bring up a list that looks like this. Just scroll through the titles and you’ll be able to see if a movie is available or not. If you have your library card and PIN, you can place a hold on a movie and we’ll call you when it comes in. (And if you know the movie you’re looking for, just type in the title in the search box….it’s easier than trying to find the card with the number on it.)
If you’re IN the library and want to look through our movies, we have them on the desk near the windows. The cards are sorted by age group…..the kid movies are together, family movies are together and non-kid movies are together.
Just find a movie you like, grab a piece of paper from the pot and jot down the number from the upper right corner of the card. It’s better to make a nice long list to bring to the front, in case some of your movies aren’t here. We’ll check the list and grab a few for you and voila, it’s movie night at your house!
